Tell us your plans for New Years Eve. I am heading to a friends... We dont have any particular traditions, I was curious if anyone does?

I have geese in the backyard this morning. Is that a sign of good luck?

That's about as wild as the 7 of us will get today. Probably just weep through a chick flick around midnight.

(I have suspicions that the dogs and cats are plotting to run through the house naked at midnight with lampshades on their heads, though. I found one lamp knocked over this morning and things askew around it. Something's definitely afoot.)

. Our only tradition is my New Years Day Chili and bowl games. For years I made it from scratch but I have gotten lazy in my old age and now use Carroll Shelby's Chili Kit. Nobody seems to notice the difference. I also switched to diced chicken breast for the meat and it works out great. Back in the day some of my NYE's turned into disasters. Nobody dead but we sure came close.

Will be going to a watchnight service although it starts at 7PM and lasts about an hour. Then over to friends till midnight. No traditions but having been there live in 1978, like to relive the memory by watching the ball drop in Times Square in NYC

??ball drop, isn't that what the Dallas Cowboys did on Sunday.

Since we moved here the town has had fireworks on New Year's Eve and I think I'm the only one in the family that's attended yearly, so hope to continue that tradition. Now sometimes, I'd sit in the van and watch because it was too cold, but I was there

When I was a kid my parents always had big parties with all their bridge friends. It was our tradition (the kids) to have root beer floats and Ruffles with Lipton onion dip. And try to sneak into the grown-ups party as often as possible!

This year I am hosting a party for my 15 year old son and his friends - serving root beer floats and Ruffles with Lipton onion dip! I invited a few of my friends over too!

We live very close to downtown Tempe where there is always a huge block party (part of the Fiesta Bowl festivities) - we can see the fireworks if we go up on the roof!

Nothing for New Year's Eve - but we generally have an Open House for New Year's Day, so I'm busy cooking and straightening.

Of course, the old year ended on a sour note as we had a car accident today. We're OK, but the car is not. Hard to be merry when you see dollar signs going up into the air. Of course, we have insurance, but of course, they are going to raise our rates.

OMG Alice! I'm so sorry to hear about the accident, but so very glad you are all ok. It's amazing you still will go through with your open house. Well, you still deserve to have a good time! Take extra good care of yourself.

Wow.. bad luck Alice.. sorry to hear it but glad you are ok.

I'll be spending the evening at a good friend's house for a small gathering. She asked what she should buy for noisemakers and I said, "You could always do what we did growing up. We'd get out the pots and pans and bang them with the serving spoons." .. she didn't like that idea very much - cookwear is expensive now. I never thought of it that way lol.

Happy New Year all!

I'm a party monster, I'll be in bed (asleep) by 9 P.M.. New Years Eve, Halloween, 4th of July, St. Patrick's are all a pain.
IMHO why do you need a special day to be happy or kind to somebody. Do it everyday.!!!

At midnight, I'll listen to Auld Lang Syne while chewing a peppermint pattie.
Also, there will be fireworks at our new baseball stadium and we drop a "White Rose" at midnight.
After all, York is the first capital of united states and the original home of peppermint patties.

Happy 2009!

LOL Lisa! I remember the pots and pans thing. And right, I wouldn't put most of my cookware through that now. I worked last night and work tomorrow so I'm staying home, reading, blabbing on the phone most likely. I've never been big on New Years Eve parties. Spent too many of them puking and disappointed in the olden days I suppose.
